As readers we all have favourite authors, whose writing engages us. We impatiently wait for their next book to come out. In the meantime, what are our options? Should we read another favourite author or find someone new?
I tend to read an eclectic range of genres and authors, although of course any new book by Stephen King is a must for me. However, I am lucky to be able to edit or review author friend’s books and manuscript’s as a freelance writer. This opens up exciting new narratives to me and I will have to say has introduced me to new writing styles.
I am currently reading a debut novel by Sophie Pollard and have another book arriving in the mail any time now from Suzanne Burkett.
I feel reading new genre’s and authors expands our imaginations and opens us up to new reading experiences. There are many ‘lists’ on the internet, if you care to search giving information on new books for each season, entries into contests and up and coming authors. It is a good place to start as well as asking your family and friends for recommendations.
Do you stick to your tried and tested authors or do you try new writers? Have you discovered a new exciting author in some way? Care to share?
Of course I would like to suggest one of my own books. The current list is here: https://www.amazon.com/-/e/B01MDUAS0V My newest novel, The Commodore’s Gift (steampunk) will be launched on 26th September 2020
